Giants want to score 27-30 points a game - [Full Article]

Giants general manager Jerry Reese seconded a notion passed along by his quarterback, Eli Manning: The Giants would like to score between 27 and 30 points per game this season.

"If you don't score 28 points, it's hard to win," Reese said, via Newsday.

It's true in theory. The Giants have only lost two games since the beginning of the 2012 season when they've scored 28 or more.

But can it really happen?

The points per game benchmark was one of the minor tidbits that might get buried in a Reese press conference that dealt with bigger picture issues like Eli Manning and Jason Pierre-Paul.

Fantasy Impact: 

The team really started to come together toward the end of the season in the new offense, even though in Ben McAdoo's first season as offensive coordinator, the team only scored 28 points or more in six games. But a healthy WR Victor Cruz along with WR James Jones and pass-catching RB Shane Vereen give Manning a host of weapons to through to. The key, the story said, is the Giants will also go only as far as their offensive line will carry them. Right now, New York has a rookie -- albeit a potentially dominant one -- starting at left tackle. They're also in a near-constant shuffle elsewhere with former first-round pick Justin Pugh, now a guard.
